If you decide to try easing back into it, consider a small-to-mid-size scooter, like the Honda PCX150. Very easy to handle, and a surprising amount of fun.Boy, I'm with ya! I had a stroke a couple of weeks ago, and even though I've had a fairly remarkable recovery, my right leg isn't ready to ride again (they won't even let me drive yet). I don't know if the Strom is in my future any more, but I'm not quite ready to switch to 3 or (shudder) 4 wheels for my fun. A lower, lighter bike would seem to be a good choice. I've loved my DL650, but the weight is so high I'm terrified of dropping it now. I wish you good luck!
And good luck with the recovery!!
